The article “Health bills fail to block illegals” (Page 1, Monday) shows that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats have forgotten for whom they are supposed to be working.

It boggles the mind that the Senate would vote to provide health care to illegal immigrants, thereby rewarding them for criminal behavior. Supporters of the health bill contend that it does not extend coverage to illegal immigrants, but they forget to mention all the hidden loopholes. Robert Rector, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, is correct when he calls the debate “an absolute charade.”

Years ago, another American, Will Rogers, said, “We have the best Congress money can buy,” which rings even more true today. The monetary price for this health care bill is estimated to be in the trillions of dollars, but the cost to the fabric of our nation is incalculable.

Our already insolvent Medicare system cannot survive the increased cost of providing health care for those who do not deserve it. The bill as written could destroy our republic.
